Python-for-android now supports Python 3 APKs

January 12, 2016 in Android, Python by Adrian Marius

Kivy logo

Python-for-android now supports Python 3 Android apps! This naturally includes Kivy, but also should work for anything else you can package with python-for-android, such as apps made with PySDL2. Using Python 3 remains experimental for now, it works but doesn’t yet perform all possible optimisations and hasn’t been as widely tested as Python 2. However, there should be no extra application requirements (beyond actually being written for Python 3), and the remaining issues and optimisations are being worked on.

Clang with Microsoft CodeGen in VS 2015 Update 1

December 7, 2015 in Android by Adrian Marius

One of the challenges with developing and maintaining cross-platform C++ code is dealing with different C++ compilers for different platforms. You write some code that builds fine with the Visual C++ compiler for your Windows-targeting build, but then your Android-targeting build breaks because Clang is stricter about standards conformance and your code was accidentally depending on Visual C++ being more permissive. Or, you write new code that builds successfully with Clang for iOS, only to find out that you used a relatively new C++ language feature that Visual C++ does not yet support, and now you have to either re-implement the code without using that language feature, or maintain a separate implementation that works with Visual C++ for your Windows build.

To make it easier to develop cross-platform code that works well for both Windows and other platforms, we’ve released an additional compiler toolset for Visual Studio called Clang with Microsoft CodeGen.
